How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb?

How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb?
One to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed.

Fourteen to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently.

Seven to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

Seven more to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs.

Three to correct spelling/grammar errors.

Six to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb".

Another six to condemn those six as stupid.

Fifteen to claim experience in the lighting industry and give the correct spelling.

Nineteen to post that this group is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb (or light bulb) forum.

Eleven to defend the posting to the group saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this group.

Thirty six to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty.

Seven to post URLs where one can see examples of different light bulbs.

Four to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL.

Three to post about links they found from the URLs that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group.

Thirteen to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too".

Five to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy.

Four to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

Thirteen to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs."

Three to tell a funny story about their cat and a light bulb.

AND

One group lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now with something unrelated and start it all over again

President Bush

… forgot to mention that it’s President Bush’s and the Republicans fault that the light went out in the first place

500,000 conformist journalists worldwide to blame everything on FEMA... and completely neglect to mention that the Governor, Chocolate City Mayor, and some individual citizens failed to attempt to change the light bulb themselves

the difficulty of the move to change the lightbulb remains a glaring question. Andy, are your refering to a class V it a must-make lightbulb change?

...and one to think he's pretty clever, but later relize that the afternoon coffee gave the appearnce of wit to an otherwise mundane comment

Do we have to get started on this sh*t again??

Looks like Andy H. should read the last sentence he posted.

Someone has to dislocate their shoulder while changing a lightbulb and then ask about great shoulder surgeons in their area.

1 to say that screwing in the lightbulb really isn't that hard (he's screwed in much gnarlier lightbulbs).

4 to argue about how we should change lightbulb ratings.

3 to get pissed because the location of the lightbulb should not be divulged.

1 to lie and say the light bulb is broken when it really isn't.

10 to now start looking for clues to tell the whole world where the lightbulb really is.

2 to tell everybody there are much nicer lightbulbs elsewhere, its not worth fighting over.

8 to bicker over why the lightbulb is or is not evil, simply because it was made in Texas.

2 to keep "bumping" the topic to the top of the list.

2 to complain and request that Sparky, the forum moderator, lock and remove the inconsiderate lightbulb thread.

1 to tell everyone just because they change lightbulbs doesn't make them cool.

Oh yeah, and 3 to claim the lightbulb forum just isn't what it used to be in the good ol' days.
